The Days and Nights of House Corinthyen

A Royal Invitation
Dark wings, dark words, they say, but this raven brings glad tidings.

A warm breeze blows through the grounds of Skycrest, foretelling another hot day. Autumn may be coming to Westeros, but you wouldn’t know it here. Lower down, where the village of Ridgewood sits clustered around the Warded Well, a cool breeze might occasionally drift down the mountain side to offer some respite from the day’s heat, but House Corinthyen is above such small pleasures. It can afford to be.

Practicing for the Prince's Tourney

{Conversation occurs out of earshot from the rest of the group.}

Trip to Liberty Hall: 2 Bows and a Family Reunion
A small party from House Corinthyen sets out for Liberty Hall, stronghold of House Thracyen, to collect two fine longbows for the Prince's Tournament.

Participating Characters: Alexia Thracyen, Giselle Montkillier, Areon Grael, Hoplites

There is only a week and a day left before the tourney and feast attendees must depart for Sunspear, and it is the wee hours of the morning, slightly before dawn, when the party traveling to Liberty Hall gathers in Skycrest’s courtyard. The high alabaster walls that surround the keep are barely visible in the gloom, and several of the Hoplites carry flickering torches. It will be a long day’s ride to the Thracyen stronghold, and they will need to seek shelter along the road during the midday hours, meaning they are not likely to arrive until nearly dark – or later, if they go gently on the horses.

Some Father and Some Time Before the Prince's Name Day
Boys will play when the girls are away.

Errik Corinthyen seeks out his father to spend some time in conversation.

A Time of Preparation
House Corinthyen makes itself ready as the tournament approaches.

Participating Characters: All

The Prince's Tourney: On the Road [1]
A prelude and a prayer.

Aengus and a dozen elite Hoplites left Skycrest just as the party from Thracyen returned, to take Janessa and Janeria to Chalcy lands, where they will await the rest of the party the next day. The rest of the Hoplites leave later the same day, to join Aengus in hunting bandits with Ser Chalcy.

The rest of the party, consisting of Alexia Thracyen, Areon Grael, Errik Corinthyen, Giselle Montkillier, Mattyw Lews, Corinthyen’s new Court Musician, and Maester Lagorio, departs well before dawn on the next day, largely on foot {excepting those of you who actually own your own horses}. What few horses the House possesses were all taken by the Hoplites for their use against the bandits.
